1M on Pikes Peak

Drove the road the day after the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. It's a really fun road but man is it dicey near the summit!

Great road. I did it last summer, seems like it's always too crowded to have any fun. My sig pic is from that drive. We need to meet up and go for a run!

Yeah I was the first up the mountain so had plenty of room. Not a lot of room for error in a few places though so tried to take it somewhat easy.

I haven't but did a little searching. Not sure if that's the look I want. I really love the way it's always looked stock! And that's rare for me as I love to tinker.
